New York Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show is Underway


The New York Botanical Garden’s annual orchid show is currently underway. “The Orchid Show: Florals in Fashion” is inspired by fashion. The Garden’s description states:

Strike a pose! The Orchid Show brings the catwalk to the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory in a fashion-inspired celebration of all things orchids—and we want YOU at the center of the sartorial experience. Catch the bold new designs of New York’s rising stars of the stitch with work by Collina Strada by Hillary Taymour, Dauphinette by Olivia Cheng, and FLWR PSTL by Kristen Alpaugh, fashionistas who have created dramatic, picture-perfect floral displays at the Garden that always capture the orchid’s good side. This is your chance to “walk the runway” and show off your own personal flair, your love for orchids, and your fashion-forward connections to the natural world. Because florals are always en vogue at NYBG.

Below are five photos from the Orchid Show:

Meanwhile, a range of flowers are in bloom outside on account of another abnormally warm and relatively snowless winter. Winter 2023-24 is all but certain to become New York City’s second consecutive winter with a mean temperature of 40.0°F (4.4°C) or above for the second consecutive winter. Since recordkeeping began in 1869, there have been no prior cases with two consecutive winters featuring such warmth.
